Again, it isn't whether anyone has been cited...but rather what would happen in the case of an accident.

If you're hit when using non-certified lights, the defense can easily claim you are at least partially at fault, which has happened. Expert testimony about lights is expensive and if you have certified lights, that gives the idiot who hits you one less way of weaseling out of responsibility for the accident.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
